I've seen a couple of videos of people sprinting in Minecraft (1.8). How do you do so?

Double tap and hold your W key.

I believe it is If you double tap W, You will sprint... but in Newer versions the default is SHIFT.

I believe the second part of your answer is wrong; the SHIFT is used to crouch by default. However, they recently added the ability to re-map springing to a specific key instead of double tapping, and some YouTubers may have chosen the SHIFT for this. – IQAndreas Dec 21 '13 at 10:02

Press the U key to sprint in minecraft.

Do you use a mod to do that? Because that's not the default behaviour. – MBraedley Mar 16 '13 at 2:41
